Threepence piece of Elizabeth I

This is another find from the group sent in by Stephen Palmer. It is a hammered silver coin in the shape of a threepence piece of Elizabeth I.

On the reverse it is dated 1567 above the shield of arms and the mint marks on both sides is a coronet. Neither the date nor the denomination is scarce for Elizabeth I. However, the overall state pf preservation turns this specimen into a real rarity.

The obverse has been struck slightly off centre but the coin is otherwise in good VF to about EF condition. Very few of the hammered silver coins of Elizabeth I turn up anywhere near as good as this one. The surfaces are also attractive and add even more to the eye appeal.    


If I dealt in coins and was selling this specimen then my minimum asking price would be £400. That figure might seem high for a relatively common coin but in its present condition I’m certain there would be no shortage of potential buyers.
